Earl Grey Affogato


Say hello to my new favorite thing.

Earl Grey Affogato Recipe from Wellnesting


An affogato is an Italian dessert much like an ice cream float only with a scoop of vanilla ice cream drizzled with a shot of hot espresso instead of root beer. While espresso is the typical brew of choice in this dessert, I didn’t have any on hand so in I replaced it with the next best thing - Earl Grey tea.

Now, I know what you’re probably thinking - that sounds terrible. But trust me on this. It’s incredible and so so easy.

You can thank me later.
